The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) is issuing a stern warning to criminals who are hellbent on causing trouble.

According to Benson Deterville, Acting Commissioner responsible for the Central Division at the RSPLF, the Force will be out in full effect this Christmas season.

Saint Lucia notably records more thefts at this time of year, but the Acting Commissioner made it clear that citizens’ safety is their top priority.

“We are going to have greater police presence during the Christmas season; there will be a lot more in terms of police confronting those criminal elements. I want to let them know that we will be on our p’s and our q’s and we will confront all individuals who are bent on continuing to do criminal mischief,” the Acting Commissioner said in an interview recently.

“We want to ensure the public that our presence and our enforcement will be just that: to confront those criminal elements head on,” he added.
